TUF 18 Coaches Announced

Season 18 of the Ultimate Fighter is already getting its ducks in a row with the announcement of the new coaches.  For Season 18 Ronda Rousey will coach opposite the winner of Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano, scheduled to take place April 13th.

Not only will this be the first ever Ultimate Fighter with female coaches but this year is also a first in TUF history with female competitors in the 135lb divisions.  Dana White also declared there would be males competing in the 135lb division as well.  Will the UFC use the same house it always has for both genders?  Open tryouts for the show begin April 15.

Rousey and Tate faced each other earlier last year when Rousey submitted Tate via (you guessed it) first round armbar to win the Strikeforce championship for Rousey.
